Another international break over. The Hammers now head to Sellhurst park to face an in-form Palace side. The last two trips there have resulted in 3:1 victories, I wonder what the odds are for a third. I am getting bored of saying ‘must win’ but hey, this is another ‘must win’ as the points need to be getting on the board pronto.
My line up:
Massive boost to have Cresswell back and I think he will slot straight in due to the lack of fullbacks.
I would pick,
Adrian, Arbeloa, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Obiang, Kouyate, Payet, Lanzini, Antonio, Zaza
With Obiang protecting the defence which includes Collins who can marshal Benteke. Oxford to come on later to sure it up after we are ahead.
I think Zaza will get off the mark today with an early goal and then be a real menace for the rest of the game.
Another 3:1 COYI
I’d like to see a win, whether it’s 1-0 or 4-3. My line up would be the same as you, but I wouldn’t bring on Oxford while Benteke is on the pitch as I think experience is key when handling players like him.
I hope whoever plays up front can get their first goal for the club, I think that will start a goalscoring run for them! Our strikers need their first goals in front of a big crowd.
Either way, as you said, it’s a must win but I’d be happy with a draw with it being away to a team in great form.
